Miss Appleby's Academy
Miss Appleby's Academy
Price: 1.95

5.0 out of 5 stars Some books do stay with you, 1 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wondered where I was being taken, and became more and more involved and convinced. A deceptively simple style and a situation that is based on sound background knowledge.


The Secret Scripture
The Secret Scripture
Price: 4.67

4.0 out of 5 stars Terrible times have terrible secrets, 1 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The author shows sensitivity in his revelation of character, social background and changing times. The two voices sing antiphonally and only gradually are all the truths exposed.


The Fellowship of the Ring: The Lord of the Rings, Part 1: The Fellowship of the Ring v. 1
The Fellowship of the Ring: The Lord of the Rings, Part 1: The Fellowship of the Ring v. 1
Price: 1.99

5.0 out of 5 stars An old friend I want to keep close by, 1 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have read and re-read Tolkein's trilogy over the years and it does not diminish in excitement, involvement with the characters and massively imaginative powers of description.
The other two books will surely follow onto my Kindle.


River of Shadows: A Commissario Soneri Mystery (Commissario Soneri 1)
River of Shadows: A Commissario Soneri Mystery (Commissario Soneri 1)
Price: 3.96

3.0 out of 5 stars The River Po... a gloomy setting, 1 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I feel sorry for poor Soneri, having to trail up and down this relentlessly gloomy waterway. He must have yearned for some light and some light relief. I know I did.
Perhaps it was the sameness of the scenery, mood and characters, that made me long for a few surprises before the end of the search.
Give me The Little World of Don Camillo! I suppose it is a mark of our world that we cannot laugh at the Communist era in Italy any more?

3.0 out of 5 stars Another Austen spin-off, 1 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As well as the use of American spellings in this most English of literature, I found the wholesale lifting of some passages and speeches from the original a bit - shall we say startling? It takes a lot to live up to J.A.
If you can get past that, then the characters are developed credibly and behave according to the manners of the period... or break them if necessary.
I did get interested in the plot, but wonder if I would buy another on, say, Kitty

5.0 out of 5 stars Calling all Pilcher fans, 19 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Winter Solstice (Kindle Edition)
You will find it all here. Well-drawn homely setting.. likeable people,,, human problems... all dealt with, with her usual depth of understanding and an eye for little, convincing details.


Through the Door (The Thin Veil)
Through the Door (The Thin Veil)
Price: 3.99

4.0 out of 5 stars An almost convincing fantasy, 19 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The author has the usual problem... how to make the reader go along with a (literally) extra-ordinary idea. The clues are laid cleverly, and the plot carries you on in anticipation, mostly because the characters are interesting.

3.0 out of 5 stars Quietly intriguing, 18 Jan 2014

A feel for the period, manners and setting made me want to go on reading, though it was a bit too quiet, I felt!
